Welcome to One Team, One Podcast, SEC Country’s daily LSU football podcast with your host Carter “The Power” Bryant. We are joined in this episode by ESPN’s Tom Luginbill to evaluate LSU quarterbacks Myles Brennan and Danny Etling and a variety of other preseason storylines surrounding the Tigers.
Luginbill serves as a college football analyst and the National Recruiting Director at ESPN. He is a former starting quarterback at Georgia Tech.
Here is a rundown of episode 3 of One Team, One Podcast:
Myles Brennan vs Danny Etling
Etling was officially named the starting quarterback. However, Brennan made a strong push for the job in the short period of time he has been on campus.
Brennan was an Under Armour All-American, which is an All-Star game Luginbill is heavily involved in the selection and evaluation process. He says the true freshman has a unique skill set and is quick at delivering the football.
Ed Orgeron’s role
LSU offensive coordinator Matt Canada and defensive coordinator Dave Aranda blows Luginbill away with their schematics. He shares an interesting story from Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables on Canada’s innovative scheme that led to Pittsburgh’s upset over Clemson.
Luginbill says Orgeron getting the LSU job is a rarity, citing his past failures as a head coach and having never been a coordinator. He emphasizes the Tigers could have problems if Orgeron gets in the way of game-planning and play-calling.
Why Brandon Harris failed
Luginbill was high on Harris as a 4-star prospect after seeing him shine at the 2014 Under Armor All-America Game. Harris displayed flashes of excellence, but eventually crumbled as the Tigers starter. Luginbill says Harris chose the “wrong school and wrong scheme” and that some intangibles may be lacking with the former LSU starter.
